Wide bevel angle around 35 degrees

Tomita in Miki, deceased chiselsmith and small knife. Biggest heaviest kiridashi I've seen. Feels like a coarse lump of iron.

Feels like white steel, iron has only extremely fine detail, steel is good woodworking tool steel HT

Iron with a hole in it from hardware on an old traditional building, unknown date probably Meiji or something like that. Feels more like a woodworking shiv than a regular kiridashi. Angle is too high in my opinion

No makers mark so I can't verify anything, but that's how I got it. It has rust on the edge and ura that I sharpened through, and I had to tap the iron to fill a low spot on the ura.

Very tip isn't completely polished since I wasn't patient enough to go super slow pull strokes. . . It would gogue out the stone. Place before the cutting edge area is slightly hollowed for extra grip for the fingers.
